Who knows how many interesting things a forest in Moscow can keep. Let’s check it by exploring one and see what we’ll find.

The first thing we come across is a metal letter ‘O’ or as it turns out later ‘zero’.

Miraculous Forest

A Saint George statue. A little cracked…

These things were used as decoration parts at the 860 anniversary of Moscow. What are they doing here?

Miraculous Forest

Number ‘six’ which made it clear that ‘O’ was ‘zero’ in fact.

A giant disco ball. The squirrels shall be happy to have it in the forest.

A snowflake.

Miraculous Forest

Different letters.

A poster with Grandfather Frost.

The sign says ‘The Rossiya Hotel’. Now we know where these decorations came from. By the way, the hotel was closed on January 5th, 2006 and in March they began to demolish it.

This is some kind of a surrealistic thing.

And it has wings!

It is covered in snowflakes!

There are several of them and they are taller than a human.

These are snowmen. But why do they have wings?

Who would have thought that we were going to find a snowmen cemetery in the forest!

These decorations were installed near the Rossiya Hotel in 2006. Back then they made kids happy but now they scary the people who happen to pass by.

  1. I was thinking the company that managed the hotel should be held responsible for clearing it away, and then see what looks like old military equipment sitting there as well. Who will be responsible for that.

    • The hotel was closed and about to be demolished so I guess the owner was hoping to squeeze every last rouble and run away before anyone notices.

  2. “Miraculous Forest” looks like typical Russian dumping ground for items no longer needed, now cast aside in the woods to decay.

  3. Rossiya is the largest hotel in the world until 1993 construction of MGM Grand in Nevada. I wish I could take some things from here and find places where they would be welcomed.

  4. huh, i thought it would be easy to google image search Moscow 860 and find some pictures of these decorations in their former glory, but i came up empty handed.
